altered as in how altered?This is a relatively well defined lesion in left frontotemporal region with mass effect(mild),no midline shift.doesnt look like an infarct.if patient is stable-do MRI.if not atleast a CT Brain with contrast-most likely needs sx-but need the scans

It's wedge shaped,, I don't think there are any differentials,, it's an Infarct in the frontal division of left mca

Agree with Dr. Sonal Jain. Left Fronto-Temporal SOL, with surrounding edema and mass effect leading to midline shift.

left MCA infarct , left frontal glioma /abscess

SOL lt. Side brain with pressure effects. Margins are well defined. Give mannitol I/V to reduce pressure effect and go for MRI for definitive diagnosis.
